These students, all of whom are from families experiencing severe financial and/or medical hardship, were awarded the scholarships for their strong academic performance. The scholarship is expected to distribute in the early next month.

Students will continue to receive these scholarships until graduation if they continue to demonstrate a good academic standing and good conduct in the coming school years.

VESAF Scholarships do not only provide an opportunity for many students to earn an education. Thanks to them, students will not need to work over the course to pay their tuition costs, or at least they will need to work less hours. As a direct consequence, they will have more time to study and learn and, therefore, to obtain a good academic record.

This fact opens the doors to the future. Scholarships do also help students to enter into higher education, help them to look further in their studies. From that point of view, Scholarships make possible the interest of students for postgraduate studies or for research programs.

VESAF is a United States-based not-for-profit charitable organization. The organization was established in Illinois in October 2014 and was issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam with the working permit No. 416 / CNV-HD dated in February 2018.

VESAF’s goal is to provide educational and social assistance to impoverished, underserved communities in Vietnam. Education is one of the four areas that VESAF is currently focusing in. The activities include providing merit-based scholarships to underprivileged students, and funds to schools to improve access to education.
